      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Mom and Pop resort

Recommended Posts

gravelle

I am looking for a mom and pop style resort for July or August. It will be just my girlfreind and I and we are looking for something nice but affordable. She will fish for a while but, we will most likely be golfing, and checking out the local attractions and shopping areas as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Gravelle, every resort on Kab @ Ash River is family owned, some from generation to generation. Many have lodges, bars, restraunts, many have nothing but peace and tranquility with cabins only and etc. The Kabetogama, and or Ash River tourism bureau and the Resort Locator above to see what resorts offer, price ranges and in most cases take a virtual tour. god luck, guts

Gravelle, I would recommend Birch Grove as a classic M&P resort. Elaine is a fine host.

Gravelle, once again, I will point out that Kabetogama and Ash River for the most part are all Ma & Pa type operations. Look at the Resort locator above for those areas and see what amenities you want, zero in on a few resorts and check out there websites from the Resort Locator link above and take a virtual tour.

Some of the resorts have great dock locations you can fish from or watch beautiful sunups and sundowns, some have great harbors to protect your boat, and etc.

Those months can be quite warm and buggy, some cabins have A/C and or ceiling fans, some have nice screened in porches and so forth. It is important to us up here that you have an enjoyable vacation so you return many times, good luck, guts

I concur with Guts, I've stayed at a couple on the kab and prefer the one I'm at now, but the Kab tourism web site list them on on ash river and kab. Finding a good mom and pop will be no problem, your shopping will be for the price you want and what ammenities you need.

Big Jeff

I would say Fronteir Resort on the ash river, very freindly place and fun/interesting people. If you call tell them Big Jeff sent ya. It is family owned and operated and if you want a place where you will be taken care of like family. The are also very reasonable with cost and they have great food at the resort. Good breakfast and bloodies!!!

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
